BUCKEYE, Ariz. -

A local high school is stepping up to a nationwide challenge issued by pop star Katy Perry. The teens made a video for her new song "Roar" and it stars a very special student.

Lyric: "I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath..."

Katy Perry's lyrics in her song "Roar" are powerful. And the image of a lone high school student, a young girl with special needs, speaks volumes.

The pretty petite blonde, the star of the show, is Megan Squire. She is a senior at Verrado High School in Buckeye.

Her friends in the broadcast class made this, hopeful to tell her story to the world.

"Megan is a very good friend of everybody's, she's just so sweet and she's pretty smart and just a really good person all around," says Clay Mueller.

Clay Mueller came up with the concept in answer to Perry's challenge to all school students to make a video to her new hit.

"It's been pretty cool the whole school has rallied behind it, I mean we've got #bringKatyPerrytoVerrado trending on Twitter."

The winning video, and there are hundreds of entries, will be judged on originality, on-air appeal, the wow factor, creativity, and capability to have a concert at their school.

Megan, who clearly demonstrates her abilities to succeed in the video, is a perfect source of inspiration to anyone who has ever felt they can't win -- "I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar."

"They [the videos] are all good but they're not original... we have a real story to be told, ours actually evokes emotion."

The school with the winning video will earn a free Katy Perry concert at their school. The students are hoping to get Katy's attention by making the hashtag #bringKatyPerrytoVerrado trend on Twitter.

So far, they're doing a pretty good job.
